Enjoy the 183 while it lasts . No idea how bad it will be when it gets nerfed . If you don't have it yet then use your free xp to grind it and experience the most fun tank in the game in all its glory !!

I think it's just a dispersion nerf, nothing too tragic. Still, no more mad snapshotting...

1st question: FV 215b 183, aka the Death Star.

2nd question: It's armour isn't that different from the FV 215b heavy tank. It's the 183mm gun that is giving Tier IX and Tier X players much wailing and gnashing of teeth, because under certain circumstances with its High Explosive Squash Head/ HESH round it can literally one shot you, most times you'll be losing 80% or so of your health in one shot, if you're lucky it will do the same amount of damage as a penetrating Russkie 152mm HE shot.

 

Now you see why people called it the Death Star?

You know it won’t end here, they will take the fun from the game piece by piece... I’m betting the jgpze100 will be stared at hard after this, I never worried about the 183, it’s bloody inconvienient but it’s no surprise considering you know the reds or greens have one or more prior to commencing battle. If they fixed the matchmaker this wouldn’t have been needed...

I can't really make sense of the numbers . Will get the real picture only after playing it . Right now the 183 gun is much much better than say a KV2 . KV2 snap shots usually land on another map . The ability to take snap shots with the 183 is legit .

It is the most played tier 10 tank . It is the most fun tank to play . There are very few tanks in the game ( another one being the elc pocket rocket ) in which you have fun even if you lose . The only reason people don't get it is coz they don't like  grinding the AT line .  Most will disagree with me but I love the AT line except the Tortoise . It is a very good grind if the AT line is played correctly as a front line heavy assault tank and not a camping td . You know a nub when you see an AT15 camping bush .

If You cant make sense of The numbers, then go to some other tank that has similar dispersion that The 183 will have.

 

Also compare The traverse speed to that of the T-150, with 19degs on Its tracks Its One of The slowest above tier v. Soon it will be joined by 183...

I seriously think the nerf is unwarranted. The thing's got paper armour, bugger all gun depression, bad mobility, and pretty bad gun handling anyway. Maybe just a camo nerf to stop it from slamming you invisibly. The rest are unwarranted IMO.

183 doesnt have same armor profile as 215b. It was nerfed remember?

Only accepts plats. Those that need help in grinding or wants to do stupid stuff, invite me. other than that, dont.

Camo nerf to reasonable figures would have been enough. What was completely broken was having the biggest gun in the game firing and the tank staying concealed where any other tank doing the same would blow it's camo.

 

It's got ELC camo on a tank that's 8 times the size and 10 times the gun. Really balanced...
